This hazardous weather outlook is for portions of eastern North
Dakota, west central and northwest Minnesota.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

The potential exists for freezing rain across much of the region
later this evening into the overnight hours. Icy roads and
hazardous travel will be the main impacts where road temperatures
remain below freezing. The coverage and magnitude of these
impacts is still uncertain.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Wednesday through Monday

Strong north winds, with gusts up to 55 mph, will follow the passage
of a cold front Wednesday morning. There is a low potential for wind
gusts stronger than 55 mph. These strong winds will diminish
Wednesday afternoon. The potential also exists for freezing rain
becoming snow. Any stronger snow showers combined with the winds may
limit visibility.

The active weather pattern continues Thursday and into the
weekend with additional chances for wintry weather. There is a
lot of uncertainty with the details of each event. A couple of
these systems could produce several inches of snowfall.
